Well, speak of the devil.
The Charlie Sheen circus is continuing apace, as E! News has confirmed that the Two and a Half Men star was hospitalized this morning.
So, what went wrong this time? Is he OK? And—what everyone really wants to know—was he alone at the time?
Let's take this one at a time.
"All I know is he was having severe abdominal pains and went to the hospital," Sheen's rep told E! News.
There's no word on the actor's current condition, but a 911 call was reportedly placed from the actor's home at 6:35 a.m. this morning, and roughly a half hour later, Sheen was taken from his home on a stretcher and transported, via ambulance, to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
And as for question No. 3—at the same time Sheen was taken away, two young women also left his home. As for his current company, father Martin Sheen is reportedly with him at the hospital, as is ex-wife Denise Richards.
One tiny piece of silver lining: the actor's hospitalization won't affect the production of his hit CBS sitcom, as Two and a Half Men is on hiatus this week.
Sheen was last hospitalized back in October, after quite the headline-making night in New York's Plaza Hotel. Though speculation abounded at the time, the actor's rep assured fans that the incident was blown out of proportion and that Sheen had simply suffered from "an adverse reaction to some medication."
Get well soon, Charlie. And more importantly, stay well.
